In the railway business, heavy vibrations are very common and can cause trouble to electrical equipment. To combat this disadvantage, Rauscher & Stoecklin developed a new solution. The “vibration-proof connector” ensures 100% safety at all times and withstands the most challenging environmental conditions. The connectors are installed in the power converter and supply the train with energy for the daily maintenance work in the depot station.
